|These wonderful little French cachepots have among their many attributes the fabulous colors of yellow and puce. Each little pot has a different scene painted in this wonderful color on the front and the back, and each pot has slightly different scenes than the other. We have little fat cherubs on one side and a serene little landscape on the other. Under each painting is a swag of tiny unglazed white porcelain flowers and leaves, hand formed mind you, not molded, and they are kind of caught up under the handles on each side. All of this on a yellow ground with tiny gold dots that form small circles. These are so French and so Louis, and just impossibly cute! They are marked with what looks like a faux Sevres mark so perhaps they are Samson. They measure 2.5" high and are 3.5" across from handle to handle. Late 19th to early 20th century.|
